Glad to hear you are doing okay Jim. Before Sandy hit, i made the point here about how pointless the rating system is. It is solely based on windspeed and a storm isn't even considered a major storm unless its a Cat3. Sandy was barely a Cat1 when it hit and to not considered it a major storm because of this is ridiculous. It provides a false sense of security because it does not take into consideration how dangerous the rain, storm surge or the size of the storm can be. The whole system should be retooled to take everything into account.
